Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, warned on Monday that the end of the world is approaching and urged society to rally in this "critical time."Kirill was speaking after a service at Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral when he said that the coming apocalypse "is already visible to the naked eye," The Moscow Times reported when translating an article from the state-run RIA Novosti.Kirill urged society to unite if it wants to prevent the world from slipping into "the abyss of the end of history.""Today is not the time to rock the boat of human passions," he added. "Today is the time to rally all healthy forces.""That's why the church, art, culture, our writers, scientists — all those people who love the Motherland — should come together because we are entering a critical period in human civilization."Kirill positioned that the "godless civilization is reaching maturity," and argued that enforced liberalism is behind some young people joining extremist groups."Look how they (the West) build the world — an unholy world — but we invite you to build God's world. ... And they (ISIS supporters) respond to that; it is for this they give their lives," he said.from: https://www.christianpost.com/news/russian-orthodox-leader-warns-of-coming-apocalypse-calls-on-society-to-rally-in-critical-period-207385/

Of course there is some truth in what he is sharing as all signs are pointing towards the coming of the Lord.But what is gravely wrong is that societies and countries will not be spared as "christian' as the body of Christ is from all nations and is not "one country" but people of God born again of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.We are not to rally humanity together as that will be the work of the anti-christ.Our Lord Jesus tells us to watch and pray and live soberly righteously and godly in this present age, looking for the coming of the Lord.

brother,I apologize, I forgot to have 'not' in that sentence. God will not spare countries who claim to be christian in the end times, his own safety is the body of Christ, no "so called" christian nations. Is that more clear? Sorry for not writing more clearly.
Patriarch Krill is the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. The Russian Orthodox Church is supporting Vladimir Putin's crackdown of unregistered churches. And yet Krill is warning of an apocalypse that's coming. So what is wrong with this picture? Is he warning that Russia is going to be bringing about the apocalypse? Probably so if Putin regresses back to persecuting the Russian church as his predecessors did.Food for thought.Blaine
